Olympic Hopeful Living in a Van

Livin' in a van down by by the river...

Interesting story about an athlete who built a camper on the back of a used flatbed truck to live and travel in while he trains in Europe.


He's making lemonade...

$2200.00 dollars for a 9-year-old army truck, 72 hours over 4 days to construct the shell, a crowdfunding campaign to outfit the inside and he's got his living quarters and transportation all rolled into one. Start at about the 55 second mark for details on the van construction and watch for Ralph's Baja's European cousin making a sneak appearance @ 1:15.

This would probably be considered an awesome adventure if you did it by choice. He does appear to be very upbeat and even to be enjoying it.
